Japanese Humor

by Marguerite Wells
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not a collection of jokes, but a treatment of how people make rules about what humor is and is not, what it should and should not do, when it should be used and when not, which types of humor is permissible and which forbidden, what is good and bad about humor, and what should be considered funny and what should not. With a background in education and theater, Well uses the Japanese examples to construct a framework for how societies in general make humor rules and how those rules impact patterns of communication.
